Centres of Asia-Pacific Excellence
Looking for ways to engage with the Asia Pacific region? The CAPEs offer events, programmes, scholarships, internships, and other opportunities to help you do just that.
What are the Centres of Asia-Pacific Excellence?
The North Asia, Southeast Asia, and Latin America Centres of Asia-Pacific Excellence (CAPEs) are committed to enhancing New Zealand’s economic engagement and cultural understanding with the Asia-Pacific region, and building New Zealanders' understanding and ability to engage. The Southeast Asia and Latin America CAPEs are hosted by Victoria University of Wellington. The North Asia CAPE is hosted by the University of Auckland. Together with the University of Waikato and the University of Otago, they deliver the service offerings of the three CAPEs.
The CAPEs offer events, programmes, scholarships, internships, and other initiatives to support New Zealand's businesses, schools, communities and students to understand the key countries of the Asia-Pacific region better. The University of Waikato leads the education and Māori business strands of work for the CAPES.
